Wait, What? Ep. 136: Finally, Finally, Finally.

Jeff Lester

Anyone remember in what book Tolkien references the Battle of the Open-Faced Sandwich?  Infographic/opening salvo by the invincible Kate McMillan. Oh, man. I hope that infographic does not hog up too much of our precious SavCrit real estate–please don’t miss Abhay writing about Lazarus or that piece about how DC ran its print runs for Villains Month, or other fine entries! Also, do join us after the jump for shownotes for our latest “Reunited-and-it-feels-so-good-except-Graeme-and-I-exchange-words-about-Game-of-Thrones-so-how-good-can-we-feel-really?” podcast!

Wait, What? Ep. 132: The Village, People

Jeff Lester

Jack Kirby on The Prisoner. Ahh, what could’ve been…. Howdy, Whatnauts!  The good news is: I think I fixed the recording levels for this episode so your eardrums will not bleed whenever I speak.  (Though I’ll miss feeling like Black Bolt.)  The bad news is:  I started on this kind of late and so powered on through the show notes.  They are….very, very brief. If last week’s notes were a leisurely feast, this week’s notes are a shaky handful of peanuts devoured standing up by the sink. And with that effortless bit of salesmanship out of the way, join me behind the jump!

I Am Truly Happy That SAGA v2 is Being Released Tomorrow

Brian Hibbs

This is partly twitter-bait (since the headline’s here auto-post under my “personal” Twitter account), but man I really owe you a full post of just how well SAGA v1 sells for us.  I was sorta holding out for the end of the month, where I’ll have the half-year of what’s selling at CE, but I’ll spoil the big reveal to note that v1 is now my second-best selling title in the store’s history of point-of-sale.  Nearly seven years. It just passed into that spot a few days ago, where it passed the previous #2, THE WALKING DEAD v1.  Understand, that is for sales of TWD v1 OVER THE LAST SEVEN YEARS. Uh, yeah. What’s the most remarkable about SAGA is…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 121: Gilded View

Jeff Lester

Erroneously called ‘Barbarian Romance’ by Jeff throughout the hours that follow. Image, I believe, by Corey Lewis for Brandon Graham; Apologies if that link is a jerk. Oh my god, it almost doesn’t matter what hour of the day or night it is, my next door neighbors WILL NOT FUCKING SHUT UP. After the jump: show notes just the way Thomas Hobbes would like ‘em: nasty, brutish and short.  (Actually, just short.)

Wait, What? Ep. 117: Sometimes Dead is Better

Jeff Lester

One of Annie Wu’s great covers from the interior of Hawkeye #8. Yep, it looks like this posting on Monday thing might be our new podcasting schedule for the conceivable future.  I hope it is not a problem for everyone (including Hibbs, who just posted the shipping list a few hours ago, do go check it out and comment. After the jump: our charming and trying-hard-to-be-respectable old chum–the show notes.

Wait, What? Ep. 111: Things That Go Wrong…

Jeff Lester

It’s….not easy to explain. Trust me. Oh, man.  Remember all the questions you guys asked us and we didn’t get to?  Well, don’t say we didn’t start 2013 right! After the jump:  Show notes,  no more terrifying photos, still kissing with saliva, etc., etc.

Wait, What? Ep. 110: Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow

Jeff Lester

One of the two delightful pieces of art made for us by the impressively talented Garrett Berner (a.k.a. The Mighty Gar) It’s our last podcast of the year!  Yes, after this two hour and ten minute Whatstravaganza, you get a nice two week vacation from our wee voices nattering on and on, answering your questions, picking apart your comics.  Finally!  Some peace and quiet for your holidays!  Doesn’t that sound pleasant? Anyway…after the jump!  More art!  Lots of links! A hastily assembled and incomplete “Best of” list! And also: Show Notes!

“Any retailer who doesn’t know how to order a comic by issue #7 is bad at thier job”

Brian Hibbs

(Which I must have read 10 times in the last 2 days, from 10 different people) OK, so let’s talk about how one might need more copies by issue #7 (for crying out loud!), using some Actual Numbers.

Wait, What? Ep. 107: Hardly Working

Jeff Lester

Australian, as she is spoke–from All-New X-Men #1, by Brian Bendis and Stuart Immonen So, I am loathe to admit it…but I totally did that thing where I was running under the gun and so the show notes have a certain je ne sais LEAVE FIFTY THOUSAND IN THE TRASH CAN AT EAST ENTRANCE OF CENTRAL PARK OR SHE IS DEAD quality to them. Nonetheless, after the jump: show notes!

Wait, What? Ep. 98: Gorilla With An Eyepatch

Jeff Lester

Gorilla with an eyepatch/ I know, I know/ It’s really serious… from Boom!’s Betrayal of the Planet of the Apes by Corinna Bechko and Gabriel Hardman We are creeping ever-closer to magic number 100, as you are probably aware.  But, hey, why fixate on the future?  There’s every possibility the world could be thrown into cataclysmic upheaval, giving rise to a world of intelligent rifle-wielding apes that, as here, look cooler than all hell. So let’s just pay attention to where we’re at, and what’s happening now, and also…show notes!

Wait, What? Ep. 91: Trip

Jeff Lester

Okay, super-super short here as I am in the process of, even now, packing and panicking like a full-fledged fool in preparation for the upcoming vacation to Portland. (And, yes, if it is not a waffle-filled one, I will be very, very pissed.) We actually talk a little bit about that in this episode so I won’t bore you with it now.  Instead, I will bore you with a fast list of the things Graeme and I talk about in good ol’ ep. 91:  a long discussion about Casanova 3.4; Zaucer of Zilk by Brendan McCarthy and Al Ewing; Matt Howarth, Lou Stathis, and Those Annoying Post Bros. (from which the above image has been lovingly nicked); why the song…  Read More…

Pitiful Fool: Hibbs Catches Up

Brian Hibbs

Man, do I pity the poor fool who has to follow that awesome post by Abhay — it’s going to make anything else sound like “Dur, duh, durdur!!” Oh, wait, the fool is me? *sigh*

Ten Things: SAGA

Abhay Khosla

It’s the periodical-type comic I’m most excited about right now– SO, THAT MEANS 10 THINGS about SAGA by Brian K. Vaughan, Fiona Staples, human beings who work for or with or under the name of Fonografiks, and Eric Stephenson; copyright Brian K. Vaughan & Fiona Staples. There are SPOILERS because it’s the internet and spoiling life is what we do here. (P.S. two weeks in the “10 thing” conceit is already falling apart! Two weeks, it didn’t even last. But … oh well, “10 Things” still sounds better to me than “boring rambling mess because Abhay is too lazy to try to write essays lately“. Other ones can’t be this long because the whole point of doing this was to…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 87: Tiny Yellow Boxes

Jeff Lester

It’s funny. I keep thinking we’re going to hit our “proper” hundredth episode any minute now and we’re still only eighty-something percent of the way there. (It’s probably the high-weirdness of having 145 entries accessible on iTunes that’s throwing me off…) But we will get there! Yes, neither rain nor snow nor sleep, nor screwy Skype, nor half-maintained hardware, nor early morning airport visits, nor crazy screeds by prominent webcomic cartoonists where the phrase “we won!” really means, “stop harshing my mellow,” can keep us from our appointed rounds…unless we decide to take a week off. Whatevs: we have a two hour episode for you, full of complaints about some of the above, but also delightful discussions of Reverse Aquaman,…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 83: As Good As A Feast

Jeff Lester

Hoo boy.  Did not think I was going to make this particular deadline.  I won’t bore you with the blah-blah-blahs, but let’s just say: papa needs a new microphone and he needs one bad.  I apologize in advance for all the not-especially-discreet cracking and popping going on at various points in the background of this.  We are maybe two weeks away from a solution to both it and the mild echo chamber effect that’s afflicted us ever since Graeme managed to transcend this corporeal realm. Buttttttttt, anywayyyyyyy… Gotta keep this short and snappy so lemme just say this:  Wait, What? Ep. 83 is two hours and twenty-seven minutes long, and Graeme and I do not spend all that time trying…  Read More…

The train keeps rolling: Hibbs’ 4/11

Brian Hibbs

Christ the truck with the NEXT batch of comics will be here in just an hour or two, I best get started writing….

Wait, What? Ep. 79.2: Power of Ones

Jeff Lester

Hey, guess who did it wrong? Yeah, I had an incredibly busy Wednesday and it wasn’t until my head hit the pillow that I remembered I’d forgotten to upload this podcast. And create this entry. So, despite my fond reveries about providing extra content and blahblahblahblah, that will probably have to wait until next week because, well, I’m tired and dumb. But I wasn’t (entirely) when Graeme and I talked now comics for our conclusion to Episode 79!  Nope, I was more or less lucid and we reviewed the latest issues of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Angel and Faith, Frankenstein, Agent of Shade, Batwoman, and a whole mess of first first issues including Saucer Country, Crossed Badlands, Saga, Avengers Assemble, and…  Read More…

Hibbs says “Heeellllo 3/14′s comics!”

Brian Hibbs

Two weeks in a row, yeah, baybee.

Wait, What? Ep. 73: Thicker Than Forget

Jeff Lester

We didn’t even come close. Don’t get me wrong–we certainly tried.  But give Graeme and I more than four dozen questions with an amorphous time deadline and you’re not going to get the bulk of those questions answered even with us putting in two and a half hours to get it done.  [Though we do so at the expense of Haruki Murakami's 1Q84: if you are currently reading that book, please skip over the 20-25 minute section of the podcast to avoid some ship-sinking spoilers.  (Sorry again, Luke.)] So consider this Part 1 of our answers to your questions, with Part 2 to come next week.  If we go to Part 3, I give you permission to begin hunting us…  Read More…
